Good Light Stand


from Rocky Hill, CT  -  Photo Enthusiast

This product is as the manufacturer claims. It will do the job for you and should stand up for many years service.


Great Light Stand


from Philadelphia  -  Pro Photographer

After going through numerous other lightstands, I have found a keeper. I shoot wedding and location fashion. I use off-camera strobe. These lightstands are compact, yet sturdy and wll-made. Don't underestimate the air cushion. When you lift up on a section, it won't come crashing back down til you push. Very handy when you're hans are full. As I stated, these things are very sturdy and stable. I use these in studio and on location with a 60" Photek Softlighter with no issue. I would recommend a sandbag on location because of wind. I've ordered 2 more, and wish I got the 3 pack right off the bat. You can't go wrong with these. As always, Adorama's shipping was fast and easy.


Excellent Lighting Stand


from Lancaster, NH  -  Business Owner

After purchasing one of these stands I went back and purchased two more. I use them holding speedlites either by themselves or mounted in/with softboxes and umbrellas. They are sturdy and work perfectly. Extactly what I would expect from Manfrotto.


Love this


from Orange County, CA  -  Hobbyist

Good quality build for the price. I bought this a while ago and used it with my speedlight and an umbrella on location + at home, and now buying another one. It works great, very easy to use.


Wonderful light stand


from Pasadena, TX  -  Hobbyist

Great light stand, especially liked the used price. The stands are so easy to clip together when you have to go on location. Heartily recommended!


The most bang for your buck


from Garden Grove, CA  -  Hobbyist

Love this stand. I used it with my speedlite and an umbrella. Don't know if it can hold up a stobe and a mid-sized softbox or not. But so far I love it.


Adorama's suggestion was right on


from Spokane, WA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This product was recommended on the Adorama video learn area, and I am happy that I followed the advice.
